About The Gathering Place
The Gathering Place is a new worshiping community out of First United Methodist Church of Ormond Beach.
The Gathering Place’s mission is to gather differently, welcome everybody, and love abundantly so all can encounter God and neighbor in new and meaningful ways. We do this by going beyond the four walls of the church, gathering online and across the Daytona Beach area.
The Gathering Place exists to rediscover the ways people of faith (and those curious about a life of faith) gather and encounter God. We are inspired by Jesus’ words in Matthew 18:10: "For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”
The role of the Worship & Ministry Coordinator is to help us discover creative ways to share the message through music and arts both online and in-person. This includes songs, specials, drama, video, stage design, graphics, and more on various platforms like Facebook, Instagram Live, TikTok, etc. Our worship style is influenced by the music of All Sons and Daughters, Rend Collective, Hillsong, and Housefires (extremely open to creative forms of worship style: gospel, hip hop, folk, pop, contextually appropriate secular music, etc.)
